Bridges and Boundary Stones Edition
Parramatta is home to a unique collection of boundary stones. A set of 10 were commissioned by Governor George Gipps, the 9th governor of NSW, in 1839. They were designed by the famed bridge builder, David Lennox. This ride searches out the 7 existing stones for you, and we'll see many other fascinating reminders of Parramatta's enthralling history along the way, including Lennox's house, grave and famous bridge, and the old orchard railway. The ride is free and lasts for about 3 hours. It starts at 9.00am from the Tudor Gatehouse, at the George St entrance to Parramatta Park.
You'll need a working bicycle and helmet. Children are welcome if accompanied by an adult. Come discover your history and heritage the best way possible - by bicycle!
